Stefano Piaggi

In order to find a selection of jewellery for the Anna Piaggi collection, I made a study starting from what she had written and so I re-read all the articles she wrote in her long career as a journalist. She actually left a list of jewellery items on which she noted down her favourites. What especially characterized her was her ability to re-use elements that had nothing to do with clothing by re-adapting them to garments and accessories, like costume jewellery.

Jewellery has always been extremely closely tied to fashion and from ancient times through to the modern day, fashion jewellery has been an aesthetic mirror of society, costume development and technological progress. This selection is dedicated to Anna Piaggi, the muse of numerous designers and a visionary when it came to the new languages of fashion. The fashion jewellery on show belonged to her and to her dramatic ability to contaminate contexts.
